Two Madisonville residents charged with drug trafficking

Two Madisonville residents are facing multiple drug related charges following an investigation in Madisonville.

According to a news release, officers with the Madisonville-Hopkins County Vice Narcotics Unit received a tip that there was an individual trafficking in drugs at a residence on Hopewell Street.  Upon arrival to the location, contact was made with an individual who originally said his name was Daniel, but he was identified as 29-year old Jacob Marshall of Madisonville and he had a warrant out for his arrest.

Following his arrest, a search of his person reportedly revealed suspected methamphetamine and suboxone in his pockets.  Thirty-one year old Robbie Smith, who had multiple warrants out for her arrest, was discovered in the residence and taken into custody.  A search warrant was obtained for the home, which allegedly revealed multiple baggies of synthetic marijuana, a 9 millimeter handgun, cash, drug paraphernalia and items related to drug trafficking.

Both were charged with possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, possession of drug paraphernalia and warrants for probation and parole violation.  Marshall was additionally charged with trafficking in meth, two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance and giving officers a false name.  Smith was also charged with trafficking in synthetic drugs.
